Fishing in Patagonia Part 1

I have just returned from a spectacular trip to a destination I have wanted to visit for many years. Patagonia has been on my bucket list and this December I had an opportunity to visit and fish in this great country. This was a fully guided expedition and the trip was organized and set up by Ron Sorenson (www.cleflyfishing.com). I have known Ron for many years as he splits his time between guiding in Montana and Argentina for the past 20+ years. He builds custom trips to for his clients based on their wants and needs. We have had many long talks on his deck during the summer about fishing in Argentina and I knew I had to visit.
